I have been teaching since I graduated from college. I spent some time in my home town of New York City teaching preschool and kindergarten children. After obtaining my Dance Therapy Degree, I taught special needs students on Long Island how to communicate through movement.
Marriage and owning a horse farm allowed me to teach ages six to seniors how to ride horses. Presently I am pursuing a Reading Specialist Certification and work as an Education Assistant at a middle school in Hanover New Hampshire. The Education Assistant job enables me to assist students with their academics and I apply many of the reading strategies I am learning to help students comprehend their content area material.
When I am not working I enjoy being outside. I find great pleasure in competing in Dressage and occasionally jumping my seven year old Morgan mare. If I am not with her I get enjoyment from yoga and zumba classes, find challenging walks to take in the summer, snowshoe, and get lost in good literature.
I believe tutoring can give a student the extra support and confidence needed to successfully understand a subject. I find great joy in being able to help students achieve the "aha" moments in understanding. My education and teaching experiences have taught me that everyone learns differently and to obtain those "aha" moments I need to have patience, know my subject matter, and be aware of the supports and instructional strategies needed for each of my students.
I look forward to helping individuals reach their reading goals.
